American Latino Expedition
While America's more than 400 national parks welcome millions of visitors annually, multicultural communities are vastly underrepresented. The American Latino Heritage Fund partnered with ARAMARK Parks and Destinationsand REI to launch the @American_Latino Expedition to engage diverse audiences to visit, explore and enjoy America's national parks.
Bloggers from across the country applied for the opportunity to participate in a national park adventure focusing on education, park stewardship, outdoor recreation and exploration, all the while highlighting historic American Latino contributions at each site. Read the blogs below and use the hashtag #ALEx13 on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to experience the fun and excitement of our 2013 @American_Latino Expedition and stay tuned for #ALEx14!
